I have been working at Risk Management Solutions full-time (More than 5 years)

Pros

+ Management does not know what you are doing so you can mess around all day and they won't know
+ The Bay area is full of other tech companies to work for

Cons

+ Management is unwilling to embrace new tech
+ Infighting
+ Demographically odd hiring practices
+ Politics are crazy
+ Not set up to meet people and make connections, people are uninterested and unmotivated to talk to their colleagues
+ Managers play favorites and then bad talk employees after they are gone, calling them trash, even the ones everyone remembers as being great
+ Cannot deliver anything on time or up to spec

Advice to Management

+ Add 360 degree ANONYMOUS review process and convince employees that there will be no reprisals and that it is really anonymous
+ Make yourselves as accountable as you make the people you scapegoat into taking the blame for being late and incompetent
+ Quit

    Pros

    Some of the most intelligent people I've ever worked with but also grounded, down to earth and humble. There is a great deal of information sharing.

    I have the ability to try new things, and even with the risk of failure be supported by my team and upper management. (Yet to hear the words "We did that once and it didn't work!")

    Because of our company size, the teams are smaller and people have the opportunity to really shine. This is not the place to work if you want to hide and aren't ready to "roll up your sleeves". Everyone has responsiblity and opportunity.

    Cons

    Majority of senior leadership is located in California and though they do travel extensively, their time in the remote offices is limited.

    Advice to Management

    Be more visible. We see a lot of Hemant but the other leaders tend to focus on their direct reports. Would love to understand what each leader brings to the table and the overall vision of the company.

    Pros

    Relevant product, interesting research. Tones of support from its parent company DMGT. DMGT is a newspaper company based in the UK so it seems odd that they own RMS.

    Cons

    Owned by DMGT (really a newspaper holding company). DMGT CFO formerly worked for a Tabaco Company and was responsible for growth of these sales in Asian and Africa.

    Advice to Management

    How can you have a person who was responsible for selling a product known to kill people at the helm when RMS (the subsidiary of DMGT)?

    It is really a shame that such talented people can turn there cheek to this.

    Executives fire a bunch of people before bonus time to line the their pockets.
    Compensation is high because of a high attrition issue they have not been able to stem for years.

    CEO inherited the leadership role from his father. RMS is his playground.

    Their internal marketing team buries these messages but look through them all and you will see the recurring theme.
